I know at 400mm the prime is better than the 100-400, is the difference significant?

I have both. The prime "may" be better but by how much? I don't think the difference is really that significant and when I see comments that use "Blows out of water, Smokes it etc" I move on to the next post. Focus acquisition may be faster with the prime but I am not sure how you can determine this in the field.

+1.

You wrote "+1" but did you read my post and take a look at the comparison?  >>>
